The survey covers items viewed by the NORC staff and an advisory panel of sociologists as "mainstream" interests of modern academic sociology. As in the 1972 survey, the interview covers the areas of socio-economic status and social mobility, intrafamily relations, life cycle related changes in behavior, racial attitudes, social control, civil liberties, and morale. Additional questions were added dealing with ecology and social deviance. The data were collected as the second in a series of general social surveys. The survey was administered to a cross-section national sample of adults 18 years of age or older. Data were obtained from the Roper Center for Public Opinion Research.

  • pt. 1. Intermarriage rates, 1970
  • pt. 2. SMSA structural variables, 1970.
This data collection was designed to test a priori theory on macrostructures and intergroup relations by examining theoretical predictions related to SMSA social structure and conditions, intermarriage, and crime in the United States. The collection utilizes a broad range of 1970 census data aggregated at the SMSA level. Part 1 presents intermarriage rates that take into account factors such as occupation, education, income, language, and age. Also included are structural and control measures calculated from the 1960 census. Part 2 provides 1970 structural variables including detailed information on marital status, occupation, ethnicity, language, education, age, race, income, and derived heterogeneity and inequality indices.

One of five surveys conducted between 1971 and 1976. The surveys reflect the thinking of almost eight thousand Americans and are notable for illuminating a pattern of concerns, hopes, and fears.

Conducted in Chile in 1964, the study is composed of four samples. Sample size ranges from 118 to 333 respondents. Sample A contains youngsters 12-14 years of age, Sample B is made up of respondents 16-22 years of age, Sample C respondents are adults, and Sample D is composed of primary and secondary school teachers. 1,010 respondents, 3-4 cards of data per respondent, and approximately 220 variables. The study measures Chilean attitudes towards jobs and education in samples of children and young adults, whose futures are not yet decided, and of working adults, teachers in particular, whose occupations and educations are settled. Variables measure the respondents' highest educational and occupational aspirations in comparison with realistic appraisals of what they are now doing and will be doing in the future. The study further explores important factors in deciding upon an occupation, as well as advantages which an educated person enjoys. Respondents in all groups but Sample A are asked to judge certain goals of the Chilean education system, their desirability and the degree to which they are fulfilled. These respondents are also asked to rate, on a high to low scale, the social prestige of given occupations in Chile.
A major portion of the study examines the appeal which various aspects of jobs have for respondents: personal contact with supervisors, fellow-workers and clientele, fixed versus relaxed time schedules, supervisions, initiative required, responsibility assumed, intensity of work, physical effort necessary, and variety of duties performed.

In addition to standard personal data items, the 1974 survey covers such areas of interest as the family, socio-economic status, social mobility, and morale. About two-thirds of the questionnaire probed for attitudes and opinions concerning qualities of a job, satisfaction with life, roles of women, birth control and abortion, sex relations, race relations, social control issues, and civil liberties. The data were collected by the National Opinion Research Center as the third in a five-year series of general social surveys. The survey was administered to a national cross-section sample of adults 18 years of age or older.

For this study, emphasis was placed on examination of the levels of violence which can be viewed as justified to bring about social control and social change. Also emphasized were the role of the respondents' personal values, their definitions of violence, and their identification with the groups involved in violence. A structured interview schedule contained both closed and open-ended questions. Some of the open-ended questions probed the respondents' general concerns, their concern about violence, and their views on the causes of and ways of preventing violence.

This survey, conducted in 1961, was administered to 822 residents of Santiago, Chile. The study thoroughly investigates past and present occupations of the respondent in order to ascertain socio-economic status within the society and to discover patterns of social and economic mobility. Variables include the respondents' satisfaction with their jobs, their feelings of permanence in their jobs, the kind of work done, whether the respondents are self-employed or employed by a public or private institution, and the status which their occupations hold--from proprietor to unskilled laborer. These variables establish past occupation, and they are repeated for the respondents' occupation at age 21, 28, 35, and 45. The past is further explored through variables concerning the respondents' father and paternal grandfather and their occupations. After examining the respondents' role within the society, the study explores their awareness and understanding of the world around them, at the local, national, and international levels. For this, the focus ranges from participation in local clubs, to opinions about the current government of Chile, to questions about Fidel Castro and the Cuban Revolution.

This study attempts to apply recent methodological developments in the measurement of time use to a national probability sample of United States households in order to facilitate development of a fully articulated system of economic and social accounts. The data were collected from a sample of Americans interviewed in October-November 1975, and reinterviewed in February, May, and September 1976. Respondents were asked to keep a diary of daily activities so that time allocation patterns could be estimated for the entire year. In addition to the basic estimates of time use obtained from the diaries, the four waves of interviewing obtained information on the employment status of the respondent and spouse, their earnings and other income, "consumption benefits" for activities, the health, friendships, and associations of the respondents, the stock of technology available to the household, house repair and maintenance activities of the family, the division of labor in household work and related attitudes, physical characteristics of the respondents' housing structure, net worth and housing values, job characteristics of the respondent and spouse, and characteristics of mass media usage on a typical day.
